How to manage cable losses on a 4G or 5G Antenna

As we move into more demanding wireless systems, the need to look closely at cable losses is becoming more-and-more prevalent.

In 4G frequencies, cables should not be more than 5m without some thought and selection going into the coaxial cable. In 5G frequencies, any length of cable is a concern that should be taking into consideration.

In this video we discuss the problem, showing the results and some actual numbers on what losses can be expected. We also demonstrate how we can assist you with reducing cable losses to the absolute minimum.
